Finsec taking legal action on Westpac non-member offer

This week, Finsec will file legal papers to challenge Westpac’s offer to non-members. The legal action is to ensure that members are treated fairly and equitably.

“Westpac’s offer to non-members will create unnecessary confusion for staff and managers. It will result in staff being on different pay ranges and different pay systems, even though they are doing the same job,” said Westpac Union Councillor Craig McKinnon. “So much for Westpac’s ‘One Team’ policy!”

“As union members, we win pay rises and other improvements because we work together and act as a group. It’s important that we continue to do this in the face of this offer to non-members.”

Finsec is arguing that the offer Westpac has made to non-members is unlawful as it breaches good faith as Westpac would not offer a higher up-front pay increase to members during collective agreement negotiations and because it discriminates against union members because for a period, it initially provides a bigger increase and salary to staff if they are not union members.
